Special case: KDE packages using kde.eclass While KDE 3.x uses autotools like many other software packages, it is using a custom setup for them, with lots of custom macros, and further Common failure cases and causes Possibly undefined macros The most common failure with autotools is related to the autoconf message "possibly undefined macro: SOME_MACRO". yes checking for pj_init in -lproj...

Missing dependencies' version Since about Summer 2006, automake and autoconf wrappers don't depend on all the versions of the respective packages forcefully, which means you cannot rely on the users to For this reason, those functions are preferred over manual call or broken or almost pointless custom scripts.

It's simple to recognize a package which build system is based on autotools: if there's a configure script, and a configure.in or configure.ac file, the build system is based on autoconf; g++ -E checking for a BSD-compatible install... /usr/bin/install -c checking whether ln -s works... yes checking whether the shell understands "+="... no checking dynamic linker characteristics...
This is solved by rebuilding autotools properly as described above, through the eautoreconf function (or other method depending on eventual higher level eclasses), instead of leaving maintainer mode to take care yes checking if g++ supports -c -o file.o... Macros written by developers for their software to be detected in the system by use of autotools are usually written in m4 files that are installed in the aforementioned /usr/share/aclocal directory. If you want to use that, you should regenerate the build system entirely.
This is not the case once a new autoconf version is released. Message #20 received at [email protected] (full text, mbox, reply): From: "Christophe Prud'homme"
For this reason,autoreconf is deprecated and avoided as possible (the same goes for custom upstream-provided scripts that uses it). This article is based on a document formerly found on our main website gentoo.org. Request was from Debbugs Internal Request
